St. Paul's Roman Catholic Cathedral in Saskatoon

The corner stone of St. Pauls’s Co-Cathedral was laid by Sir Wilfrid Laurier.

Originally built as parish church it became a pro-cathedral in 1921, and a full cathedral in 1934 when the diocese of Saskatoon was established.

The organ was installed in 1912 with the stain glass added in 1945 to commemorate those who lost their lives in World War II and in 1976 for those that lost their lives to a fire.

Due to its small size it has been unable to function as a Cathedral since the mid 1990s; when the new Holy Family Cathedral opened, St. Paul’s became a co-cathedral and continues to function as a local parish
